**JByron's Smurftastic BabyBlue RSX**

POST #160 bought a new (to me) car

Bought the car in July, 2001. Been through some stuff!

UPDATE 12-22-15
New OEM front bumper and Aspec front lip
New OEM fog lights
Type-s front BMC, prop valve, brake booster and SS rear lines
New LCA bushings
Top1motors side splitter
New wheels on Michelin pilot SS, aligned and corner balanced







Started with this:


Four years later (I swear, this look was in then!):



Four years after, made the biggest mistake by having it painted on the cheap. I like what I was going for, but execution was, well, cheap:



And today, conversion by ksmatic and paintjob by Galpin Autosports:


My best effort with my DSLR (missing some recent mods in these pics, like exhaust)

0.


4.


5.


7.


8.


Some out and about pics through the years















For those wondering about wheel and tire specs, here's me answering some questions! Hope this helps

Absolutely no rubbing in these circumstances. Even going 80mph and big dip or bump in the roads. I can go over most speed bumps straight on. 100% rub-free. Alignment specs for this are -2.5 all four corners!

High speed cornering, no rubbing. ONLY time I rub is driver's side when I am making a right turn up a driveway. That's it. I can't figure out why, I figure it's because I'm sitting there. 200lbs on one corner has gotta influence that. But when I am tearing through the canyons, even on big dip and sharp turns at speed, zero rubbing.

I do still have my fender lines. They are trimmed lightly. What I did was put some painters tape all on the inside of the wheel well, then I took as many hard turns, etc as I could. When I got back, I looked for where the tape had rubbed off, and I simply cut that shape out.

All four of my fenders are rolled flat

Love the colar/stance/over all look of it, I would change a few things tho. I like honda badges over acura. IS badges and a Integra would look very nice and clean. Another thing i would add would be clear side markers and ION or clear Fogs. Other than that its freash as fuck keep it goin. What does the interior look like?

Interior is stock leather, but with the titanium trim, massive amounts of edead, CCF and mass loaded vinyl, plus 1000w RMS of stereo (400 to the fronts, 200 to the rears, and 400 to the sub) all on knukonceptz, 1/0 awg for the power, 8 awg for the sub, and 12g for the speakers.
